The culturally rich and historic Tuscan city of Siena
is beautiful at any time of the year, but it truly dazzles during the
Christmas season. For the traditionally close-knit Italian families,
Christmas is a time to celebrate, spend time with loved ones and to
indulge in delectable Italian cuisine. The Christmas season in Siena
is traditionally celebrated from Christmas Eve through Epiphany, during
which time the locals revel in the merry holiday spirit.
